Is this "normal"? I guess it is because it is obviously not raining anymore.
A friend of mine tweeted me and said she heard the news on radio that the flood situation is Johor is "back to normal". She wanted to know what is 'normal' about floods? Can anyone tell her? Or the news editors on radio stations?
Several times each year we all get to read about royals and heads of states who 'care'. A people's king. Or a caring ruler. Etc. etc. etc. As a Malaysian I have never had a stomach for these editorial cliches much less believe them. But I am so happy that there are exceptions.
I received some photos of Raja Zarith, consort to His Royal Highness, the Sultan of Johor. Raja Zarith was photographed as she visited flood-affected Pagoh in Johor state. the Princess was delivering much needed supplies and spending time with the people of her state. Unlike our usual Malaysian big shots when they go on their rounds there was no fanfare. No banners. No outriders. No fuss. Just love and caring in the performance of duty.
I bow in humble respect of a real, Royal Princess.
|No it is not a river but a flooded street in Pagoh.|
The Princess listening to some of the flood victims in relief centres
A royal visitor with her people. Notice the total absence of photographers.
My favorite photo. The Princess eating with her people.
Now, if only those flers from Putrajaya would follow her royal example.
